If ANY movie warrants a trilogy, this one does. But if not, I'd love to see it done as a miniseries ala Mr Mercedes.
Personally, I loved the TV miniseries, and thought the casting was perfect...except for Fran. Molly Ringwald? REALLY? Ick.
Otherwise, casting was dead on. Rob Lowe as Nick? The only person who could have done it better was, in my opinion, Robby Benson, but he was too old.
That's who I always saw as Nick. A better choice for Fran would have been Kirsten Dunst, but I don't think she did TV at the time. And MAYBE Lara San Giacomo wasn't the best choice for Nadine. Maybe. But everyone else? Oh, yeah....

Has anyone found any more updates about this project? The only thing I could find was the announcement that it might be turned into a miniseries from back in April. There are so many SK projects in the air right now. It's really exciting, but hard to keep track of everything.

I agree with what everyone's said since this thread started; a feature film is not enough. The novel is so filmic, it would be perfect to adapt into a miniseries.

MikiM, I hadn't thought of Kirsten Dunst, but she actually would have fit for Frannie. There are so many younger actors now that I can't quite keep up. If the project ever gets off the ground it will be interesting to see the cast.
